Sesame Street's goodwill ambassador, Elmo, hosts this upbeat and reassuring program that will leave toddlers flush with the excitement about learning to use the potty or toilet by themselves. Reassuring words, comical vignettes, animation, and encouraging songs foster themes of independence and perseverance ("It just takes time," is a sample lyric) while fostering a sense of pride and accomplishment, not just in using a potty but in the many things kids learn to do as they grow, such as hitting a baseball and tying a shoe ("Look at what you can do now"). Viewers are encouraged to "listen to your body" and are reassured that "accidents do happen sometimes." Other songs ease the transition from diapers to training pants and underpants, and promote good hygiene habits -- a tour of a toilet paper factory is a fun diversion. A montage of the many different age-appropriate names children have for bodily excretions will produce giggles. This is a lot to fit into a 45-minute program, but all the themes are indelibly reinforced in the progress of Baby Bear's sister Curly, who, by program's end, will have successfully used the potty for the first time. As Elmo states, "When you gotta go, you gotta go." Elmo's Potty Time will make this rite of passage a positive experience. It is certain to be No. 1 one with viewers; and perhaps No. 2 as well.
